Strange room shape. Best Monitor placement?

Hello all,

I'm in the process of home shopping and I'd like to get some input on this particular room for mixing/monitoring in. This room is on the 2nd floor of a house with vaulted ceiling. Measurements are approximate. The room is 10'x25' with vaulted ceilings on one side and a small window alcove on the other. I've attached a guestimate measurement layout and 3 pictures.

I will have full ability to do whatever I need to this room to get it into shape. I have 2 boxes of OC 703 ready for sound panels. I'm wondering what type of issue I'm going to run into with a room this shape. I've that it is best to put monitors against the shortest wall, but that it is also preferred to put them against vaulted ceilings when they are present. Doing both will not be possible in this case. Would love to hear some thoughts on a room this shape. How big of an uphill battle will taming bass and reflections be in a room like this?
